I need help doing some research. I have been trying to compile articles and studies done by expert professional psychiatrists and psychologists concerning how people act, react, feel, and think after being sexually assaulted. Plus the profiles of the offenders. I have found a few things, but I want to have copies of detailed professional studies. I have found through reading them that my experience is quite common. Also, I have found that my assaulter matches profiles perfectly. I want to compile as much solid proof as I can to back up what I am talking about when I go to an attorney and to the authorities. I am not very good at articulating, so I think that I am going to need things to reference to solidify what I am talking about. Plus, I have been informed that due to my personal situation involving the assault, I can expect to run into extra problems when talking with the authorities.

Thank you all for your help.
Mike

mike,
don't know if you have access, but what i suggest you do is go to the closest area college/university snd do a search for keywords. check out the psychology indexing as well as sociological indexes. you might also want to look iinto the law articles, though that is where i am sketchy. i suggest the post-secondary libraries as opposed to public ones and high scool libraries because post-secondary has better access to research databases. this stuff is all online, but for genuine research databases you have to have sub>

I do have access. I started going to night school a couple of semesters ago. Our school library is not very good, but I know that it allows access to some other schools libraries and on-line stuff. I'll check into what I actually have available.

What would be great is if I could get some names of people who have written articles. I've been reading the articles that are linked off of this site, plus other sites, and I'm not finding much about what I am looking for. Right now, I am not comfortable doing the research at school. Maybe that will change when I get a new laptop and connect to their wireless network. At least that way, everything will mostly be on my computer.

Thank you for your suggestion.

Does anybody have any information? Specifically I am looking to research women who sexually assault men and everything involved in it.

Mike,
You may or may not find what you are looking for in the following resources. Some of these were from my research paper I did in massage school which of course focused on massage and survivors. However, I think some of these sources had information that you are looking for (I just can't remember now which ones). So here they are and hopefully it will help or lead you to the place you need to go. I've found google is a great place to search and find stuff on the internet. Also I have an article by Williiam C Holmes on the Sexual Abuse of Boys. It was more to do with the frequency of abuse but was from the JAMA, Dec 2, 1998 issue.

Ok here are the sources I used for my paper: (hopefully the format doesn't make this too hard to read).
